RETIRED: Linux Kernel Multiple Prior to 2.6.24.1 Multiple Memory Access Vulnerabilities

The Linux kernel is prone to multiple memory access vulnerabilities, including:

- A vulnerability that allows unauthorized users to read arbitrary memory locations.
- A vulnerability that allows unauthorized users to write to arbitrary memory locations.
- A vulnerability that allows local attackers to access resources in certain vservers.

An attacker can exploit these issues to read and write to arbitrary memory locations on the affected computer.

This issue affects versions prior to Linux Kernel 2.6.24.1.

NOTE: This BID is being retired because each of the issues covered in this BID are now being tracked separately by the following BIDs:

27796 Linux Kernel Prior to 2.6.24.1 'copy_from_user_mmap_sem()' Memory Access Vulnerability
27798 Linux Kernel Prior to 2.6.24.1 '/proc' Local Memory Access Vulnerability
27799 Linux Kernel Prior to 2.6.24.1 'vmsplice_to_user()' Local Memory Access Vulnerability
27801 Linux Kernel Prior to 2.6.24.1 'vmsplice_to_pipe()' Local Privilege Escalation Vulnerability
